Check it's size before buying

thomas w., Newegg
7 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this not doing more homework than I should have. I dont fault Newegg for this. The order/deliver process typical Newegg - great. Don't be me - check out the specs and make sure this drive will fit in your laptop.
  • Pros: Pros: Enterprise-class 2.5" drives are great workhorse drinks in a small form-factor. Plus with SED capability, makes it a good investment. It's a reasonable price for a EFD. Also it has a small SSD and 64mb of cache which helps accelerate IO, along with a base rotation speed of 7200rpm.
  • Cons: S I Z E !! If you are considering putting this in a laptop, stop now and look for alternatives or double-check your clearence. This drive, while 2.5", is much taller than a traditional 2.5" which can make it difficult to fit in tight spaces. FYI this will NOT fit in a macbook pro 17" using OCW's data-doubler. It fits in the Data Doubler just fine but you'll find that you can't secure the bottom because the drive-side is about 1/4" too tall. Unless your laptop is huge ...

Seagate's Dirty Little Secret

Gene P. Louie, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: Here is Seagate's little dirty secret. The company sells its identical capacity external and internal hard drives under different names: Free Agent, Expansion, Barracuda, and others. Consumers are led to believe that there are various grades and qualities because the outer shells look cosmetically diverse, prices are on a hierarchy, accompanying software are different, and warranties vary. .

Жесткий диск SATA-3 1Tb Seagate 7200 Constellation ES.3 [ST1000NM0033] Cache 128MB

Ritm, dns shop
20 June 2012
  • Summary: Брать за такие деньги не советую.
  • Pros: 1. Один из самых быстрых в своем классе, уступает лишь рапторам с 10000 rpm. 2. Время наработки до отказа - 1.4 млн. часов!
  • Cons: 1. Цена в ДНС! Она совершенно неадекватна! Нет, ну на самом деле, средняя цена по моему городу 3000 рублей! Доходит до смешного, поскольку, 5 минут ходьбы от ДНСа принесут экономию в 700 рублей. И это касается не только данного товара. 2. И все-таки он не бесшумный. Это характерные щелчки и похрустывания, примерно в два раза громче ST1000VX000, т.е. в районе 4-4.5 бел. У кого был какой-нить WD грин или блу - сильно удивятся.
